I just for the first time tonight tried to get the Freeview DVB-T feeds on my HTPC. The key parts of hardware I have are:
* Hauppauge HVR-3000
* PX8500GT Video Card with onboard H.264
I'm operating Vista Home Premium, with Power DVD & Ultra installed, and trying to use Dvbviewer to view the Freeview Terrestrial content. I followed Fossie's original instructions (1st post), and my scan picked up 78 channels.
But when I try to view one of the channels via the Channel List (say TV3), it tells me what is on in text, but throws up the following error:
Cannot load Source Filter, error 0x80004003 Invalid pointer
The channel names are correct, and the EPG appears to be working and accurate. What have I done wrong??
Fossie: I think my lag is different to yours, as I have a 2.2Ghz Core 2 Duo + 8600gt.
Have you enabled purevideo in powerdvd. And also, is the card AGP or PCI-E.
I can't brain today. I have the dumb.
Fossie: One other thing..you will need vista
I know that this is slightly OT.. but has anyone got DVBViewer tuned with both the DVB-T and DVB-S channels at once? It would be great to be able to flip between the channels to compare the different in quality.
Note: I tried with what i thought were the correct settings, but no channels found.
greminn: Hi There,
Im running the following hardware:
Athlon 64 3700+
1GB TwinMOS RAM
Gigabyte 7600GS 256 Heat Pipe Addition 
Dual Boot Windows Vista Home Premium & Windows XP
SONY Bravia 42" LCD
and have Channels TV1/2/3/C4/6/7/Sport Extra running in Tauranga under Vista (where are the rest gone?). I have PowerDVD 7 Ultra and DVBViewer installed and seeing the channels ok... tho my CPU is running HIGH under all channels and maxing out on TV3. This was acually pretty painless and setup went as expected.
Gigabyte says that my card supports PureVideo HD so i have EVR turned on and i am seeing the same kind of Lag, tho it is intermittant, you are noting Fosse. Is my GFX card just not up to it?
Should i upgrade the card or the CPU? Or dont i have enought RAM
Note: This unit is using MCE2005 with the DVB-S tuner in the card and works great.

Fossie - I think in your rewrite you need to make some mention of the cards that support hardware based H.264 decoding. This is a critical (probably THE critical) issue for setting up to receive DTT. This forum has become littered with a multitude of threads all asking this type of question - it would be nice if we could just direct to this thread/writeup.
